3 Reasons You Need Perfect Posture

By Virginia Laird

One’s posture can play a huge role in the overall health of the body. Posture is directly related to the spine and its health. As the spine is out of sorts, it can be more difficult to keep up good posture. Likewise, if you have bad posture, it is difficult to maintain a healthy spine. Although many do not ever want to work on perfecting his or her posture, it is important to do so. Reasons you should make your posture a priority include:

  • Improves your health
  • Protects the spine
  • Encourages pain free activity

A visit to the chiropractor can help one begin the path to perfecting posture. Along with adjustments, chiropractors offer a variety of helpful tips, exercises, and stretches to help.

Improves Health

Bad posture causes the spine to shift even more than it typically would. This can cause the spine to become restricted in function, which can cause problems with the communication of the body’s systems. Allowing a chiropractor to apply small adjustments can restore function. One may have the ability to recognize an improvement in overall health once posture is corrected. Research suggests that maintaining good posture and spinal health can improve the function of the immune system.

Protects Spine  

Having good posture can put less stress on the spine. Hunching over, not holding your head over your shoulders and refraining from sitting up straight can all cause tension on the spine. The act of sitting up straight puts the back muscles to work. These muscles can help to support the spine, taking off some of the stress and helping to protect the back from injury. Good posture also protects the spine by reducing the unnatural movements that can induce function restriction. Chiropractors recommend always holding the head over the shoulders as the first step of perfecting posture.

Encourages a Pain-Free Life

Practicing perfect posture may not seem comfortable in the beginning. However, it can help reduce the pain and troubles many may have in the back. The best way to combat back pain is to support perfect posture. Posture assists the back in reducing the movement. It also helps to prevent function restriction on the body.
